Browns exec reveals why Cleveland selected Baker Mayfield over Sam Darnold

Browns 2018 NFL Draft Live Blog: The Cleveland Browns are on the block

Mayfield handled those inquiries on Friday during his introductory press conference with the Browns.

With the 32nd pick, Baltimore Ravens book-ended the first round of 2018 National Football League draft with another former Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson after trading back to the first round with Philadelphia Eagles. The Brownsown the first and fourth picks in the upcoming draft, and five selections in the top 64, so what they do with this draft will shape the franchise's future more than previous seasons. It was meant to be Sam Darnold, he was number one in just about every mock draft. People are concerned that he will end up like Johnny Manziel. "They liked him. But (general manager John) Dorsey never contacted us, and we've known John for a long time since he was with the Packers as a scout".

"Baker Mayfield is, from a football IQ standpoint, is as good as I've been around, " Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com "He has a tremendous arm talent, more so than I think anybody knows". When it was all said and done though, they were winners in our eyes for more than simply the accumulation of nine new players. I don't see any immediately impactful players in the Pats draft class and they still don't have a backup plan for when Brady leaves after this season. "We thought they were going to trade down". Look for the Ravens to bring Jackson in for "wild cat" type packages during his first year, before making him the eventual starter.

The Browns selected Mayfield with the first pick, while the New York Giants took Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 2. This will put him on the same offense with Odell Beckham Jr... She's over there. I'm like, 'All right coach.

He would have great numbers overall for his college years in the 47 games he has played and he has an overall completion percentage of 68.6 and had thrown for 129 touchdown passes as opposed to just 29 interceptions. Falling to the Jets at three, a team primed to take over NY in the next few years, was the greatest blessing either Darnold or the Jets could have received.

If not, it's imperative that the Bills use their enormous draft capital to improve the team outside of the QB. If Darnold is there, Elway will be tempted to take him. Going into last year's season, Darnold got a lot of hype rightfully so. That can be "an over-the-shoulder throw made in rhythm into tight coverage more than 3 yards past the line to gain". For me, when I say those type of things, it's because I'm competitive.
